Compaq Desktop Sr1520NX

Bought a Compaq desktop, SR1520NX, still in its original config. Talked to Compaq tech support and they told me I had 2 banks of mem, each with 2 slots. When I looked at it, WRONG. It only has 1 bank with 2 slots. I wnat to upgrade the mem. It takes PC3200 mem. Right now I have the original 512MB in it. What meme can I put in....pc3200 1gb?

Hi nordicwookie,
The main point here is to match the 512MB already installed into the PC. You can buy from either of these web sites. (Click on the link). This site offers free shipping.

You want 512MB of memory which will give you a total of 1GB.
Though a suggestion if I may. If you are going to run or are running Vista, suggest you go higher. 1.512GB. This is listed on the site. (This is only a suggestion).

Good Luck! nordicwookie

I want to change my motherboard of my laptop. My laptop is Compaq Presario cq60-415ee w/ a product no. ny252ea. What will I buy? Thank U!

Changing motherboards on a laptop is not easy. You can only change the motherboard with exactly the same as what is installed originally because they are designed specifically for that laptop case.
Changing motherboards in a desktop case is a different matter because desktop cases have standard mountings for motherboard to suit different manufacturers.

When on my system raise on tow beeb in our cpu

According to intel web site, 2 beeps indicate a memory failure.
look it:

You are getting 1, 2, or 3 beeps that indicate a memory failure.

1 beep - Refresh Error (with nothing on the screen and it is not a video problem)

2 beeps - Parity Error

3 beeps - Base 64 K memory failure

  • Reseat the memory.
  • Make sure that the contacts on the memory and the socket are clean.
  • Try removing one bank of memory modules at a time. Note: Some systems might need to have a memory module in Bank 0.
  • Try using memory modules from the same manufacturer with the same part number and speed.
  • Check for a faulty memory module by trying the memory in a known good system.
  • Trying known good memory in the system.
  • Check the power supply and check for power fluctuations.
  • If the steps above do not resolve the problem, the desktop board may be defective. Try a different desktop board.

    I use a projector with my laptop when teaching school. Suddenly my projector will only display my desktop MINUS the icons. The mouse doesn't show and neither do anything I try to view like files or...

    Sounds like your projector was told to be an extended desktop, but not in the usual place, which is to the right of your original screen.
    One thing you might try, uninstalling and reinstalling the video card drivers if you can get them easily. Another thing is while your hooked up to the projector, if your using XP, is right click on the desktop, click Properties, Settings, then you should see 2 monitor icons. They should be side by side, if not make them side by side.
    You could also make the projector your primary monitor, this will focus it on your desktop as if you were using your laptop screen. You might try this first to see if it corrects your problem.

    Where do all the leads go?

    Hi there! I got given one of these MoBo's and, in a mad fit of generousity, told my daughter that I'd build her a PC for college using it! I found the MoBo tech reference guide on this page- It's near the bottom of the page, with the text "Technical Reference Guide for Compaq Evo D300/D500 Personal Computers and W4000 Workstations Featuring Intel Pentium 4 Processors and the 845 Chipset" on the button! You will need page 6-11 for the Pin-Out details of the P5 connector. Hope that helps you out Wolfie
